Youth Exclusion in Yemen: Tackling the Twin Deficits of Human Development and Natural Resources [English]. 2009
A Middle East Youth Initiative Working Paper No. 9, November 2009, edited by Ragui Assaad, Ghada Barsoum, Emily Cupito and Daniel Egel. The authors identify in this paper processes through which many Yemeni youth are excluded from the opportunity to become productive adults and positive contributors to society. Many youth face social exclusion, whereby they are cut off from the resources and institutions that could assist them in their transition to adulthood. Moreover, youth exclusion in Yemen is highly gendered and regionalized. Females and rural residents are much more likely to be excluded than males and urban residents.
